Definitions for "VDB"
Keywords:  brenner, victor, lincoln, cent, arose
Initials of Victor D. Brenner, designer of the Lincoln cent.
Synonym for the 1909 VDB Lincoln Head cent. Controversy arose over having a non-Mint engraver's initials on a coin, so Victor D. Brenner's initials were removed. In 1918, the VDB was returned to the Lincoln Head cent in a less conspicuous spot on the slanted area at the bottom of Lincoln's shoulder.
